    Any experience with silver for bugs like H Pylori and the rest?

    One of my docs recently recommended it as well, so I'm curious to the answers you get here!

    Well you can find some anecdotal stuff on the internet:

    -it seems to be affective
    -if the silver particules or to big and the parts per million ratio(ppm) is high there could be a chance of Argyria. I personally think that chance is small.
    -if the silver particules or very small (nanoparticles) they could be potentially harmfull. After GMO, nanopartictles seem to be the next evil. read:

    Smaller particles and low ppm seem to be more effective.
    I wouldn't take it on a regular basis, only from time to time.
